The Achilles Sydney Committee has been working hard to finalise some exciting new partnerships which we'll be announcing over the coming weeks.
The first of these partnerships is with local Sydney physio, Fix Physio. Mike Blackwell, Owner and Principal Physiotherapist of Fix Physio, heard about Achilles through two of his patients. Here's what he had to say about getting involved:
"Fix Physio is committed on a daily basis to helping our patients overcome physical injuries to achieve the healthiest and happiest versions of themselves. As a small business, Fix Physio is committed to both local and international non profit organisations in any way that we can. When a couple of our regular patients introduced us to a charity that they are heavily involved with- the Sydney branch of Achilles, we couldn't wait to get involved."
Fix Physio will be supporting Achilles in its aim of creating a place where people with disabilities can enjoy the social, recreational and health benefits of an active lifestyle. Fix Physio will be providing massage and physio services to Achilles members and volunteers at a range of local and national running events as well as sharing insights and knowledge on staying injury free whilst being active. They also have a collection tin at their practice so remember to donate if you're a client.
We look forward to a great partnership together improving the fitness and wellbeing of people with disabilities and the wider community.
